Super Mario 3D Land – Game Review (3ds)

Hey guys this is a game i’ve been playing lately and I wanted to tell you about it.

This game is called mario 3d land. One of the first games to come out for the 3ds. As for story peach gets stollen from Bowser and you have to save her. There are 8 worlds and 8 special worlds after you beat the game. For gameplay this game has got good gameplay and controls. For gameplay you have 16 world and along side of that you can collect 3 star metals for each level and if you can get the top of the flag pole (where you finish a level) for each level you unlock a special level. The controls aren’t what you expect. The analog stick works fine but the buttons for the sprint and to jump are weird. Well to jump you can press A and B. But B is usually to sprint. Now Y sprints which is weird. As for the 3d aspect its pretty good. Its no longer side scrolling. For power ups there are a Mushroom, Fire Flower (Lets you shoot fire), Boomerang suite (lets you use boomerangs), and finally a Tanooki suite (which lets you glide and kill enemies by pressing B. Which was in super mario bros. 3 and made its second appearance in 3d land. They also brought back the Airships which also was in Super Mario Bros 3. Some bummers is that there aren’t that many secrets at all and the levels don’t have as many challenges in the previous games. You also need to press L to go in a pipe which is really uncalled for. BUT A REALLY GOOD THING IS THAT THEY ADDED LUIGI!!!!!!!!!! Any way everything else is good about this game but I will give it a 8/10 because of the disadvantages i just mentioned. This game costs 40$ and i totally recommend it to anyone who has a 3ds.

Terraria: Game Review (PC,and Mac)

If you like games this is a must have. I’m not going to go to in-depth with this game because I just started playing. This game is Terraria. This is an under rated game. Only 1 million people bought the game. For this game you will have to download a program called steam to play it. So now for my thoughts so far and an overview.

At first you can create a character and name it anything you want. Then you can create a world in a small, medium, or big. Just a warning if you are a beginner start a small world. That reasoning is because there are dungeons and floating islands you can find. They are more easy to find when you make a small world. Any way when you start a new world they will give you a Pick, and Axe, and a Sword. First you will have to get wood and make a house, make a crafting table, find stone and then make a furnace. Then you can make ores you find (Ex. Iron) you can make it in to bars. Then you will need to craft an Iron Anvil to upgrade your weapon’s. Thats just getting satrted. You can also make rooms for people and when they arrive they will each sell different things or heal you. There are plenty of features and biomes in the world. Each of which having different enemies and different cave. In cave you will find chests which can contain accessories which can do a lot to help you. Eventually you will need a hammer. That can destroy chests, torches, etc. But another thing is life crystals. Life crystals increase you health. You will start out with 5 heats. There is a day and night cycle where you can at night find falling stars. If you have 10 falling stars you get mana crystal which increases your mana. Mana has something to do with magic. There are bosses in this game which also make this game a lot more fun. There is an under world filled with lava. But in the under world you can find a flying demon holding a voodoo doll. If you kill it you will obtain the voodoo doll. If you through  it into lava it will summon the wall of flesh (THE STRONGEST BOSS IN THE GAME). You will obtain a pwnhammer after beating him. That will allow you to break demon alters and bless your world with cobalt, mithrill, and adaminte. Which when you make tools are the best in the game. There is also a Armor slot to make you more defensive. There is potions which allow you to do a lot of cool things.

This game has so many features, items, etc. Some of you might think its like Mine Craft. Well this game has is nothing like it. I personally think its better. This game cost 10$. Right now for the holidays it cost 5 dollars. So get the game and play with your friends because it is a multiplayer game. I rate this game a 10/10.

Before I go I only had this game for a week so I don’t know much about this game.

Luigi’s Mansion: Game Review (GCN)

As you know Luigi is Mario’s brother. He has never got a game where its based on him. Well Luigi has a game like the game Mario’s Missing game.But that game is so bad you might not even like the franchise after plying it. He has been in Super Mario Bros 2 (NES) but no one really knew who he was and why he is in the game. Until 2001 we knew how he really looked and his personality. This game was Luigi’s Mansion. Luigi’s Mansion was a Gamecube Launch title along with other game’s, but this was the first Mario type game. Another fact is this is the closest you can get to a Ghost Buster’s game in 2001.

Now for the story. Luigi won a mansion in a contest he never entered. He asked Mario (His Bro) to check it out for him. Mario never came back. So Luigi went him self with a flash light. When he gets there he realizes that the mansion is haunted so now Luigi knows that Mario was captured by someone or something. He try’s to progress in the mansion but ghost scare him and Professor E. Gadd comes and helps him. E. Gadd try’s to Help/Protect Luigi but fails. They go back to his lab and receive the Poltergust 3000 ( An Over Powered vacuum that can suck up ghosts).He also explain’s that all the ghosts have been free from his painting’s. He sent’s Luigi off to find his brother and that is really the story.

Controls are next. Now the controls are inverted. Which mean when you look up you look down. Its annoying at first  but you get used to it. Unless Like me you hate inverted controls and don’t play it for 2 months and start playing it again. Well any way there are options for side step controlling and standard. I don’t know what side step is but I prefer standard. Well “R” you use to suck up the ghosts. “L” will let you use elemental metal’s against ghost but will get into that later. “A” call for Mario of when you next to something Luigi will check it. “B” is to flash you light on or off. “Z” is to check your game stats. “X” and “Y” to interact with your game boy horror witch E. Gadd also gives you which keeps track of your money. “Start” pauses the game. You use the Analogue stick to move around. And he “C Stick” to control where you want to aim you Poltergust 3000. Wow lots of controls I Know but most them aren’t used that much.

There are various types of ghosts with different abilities. There are rare ghosts which are called Speedy Sprits and Golden Mouse. They will drop a lot of money. In this game you need to collect a certain amount of money. Depending how much money you have the end determines your rank. If you get 28,000,000 dollars you get rank A. You have a Health bar containing 100 hearts if ghosts hurt you you will lose money and lose health. There are various types of currency. Every time you catch a boss ghost you will get pearls and if you suck the ghost up in one trial you will get a big pearl. There are Gold, Dollar Bill’s, Gold Diamond ( Worth $4,000,000, WORTH THE MOST IN THE GAME), regular Diamonds, Ruby’s, Sapphires, Emeralds, and red diamond which are worth the least. You will find the money by pressing A on pots, cabinets, etc. Along the game after you clear a room you will get a key to progress in the mansion. You will find boo’s and you will need to catch 50 of them. But you only have to catch 40 to go to the final boss. You will also need to get Mario’s Item which there are 5 scattered across the Mansion. You will also get elemental gems. A Fire, A Water, And an Ice. They are used to weaken and catch elemental ghosts. For water you can water plants to get money. There are 4 area’s With a final boss which most of them are really cool are creative. After you beat an area you will turn to ghost you catch in to a picture. There are different frames for the picture, a Gold, Silver, and a Bronze. You get one of those frames depending how good you did against them.One really good positive thing about this game is that there are A LOT of secrets. And Remember SERETS = GOOD! Once you beat the game you will fight king boo and find Mario. E. Gadd will fix the mansion with the money you got him and make a real Mansion and will put Mario back in to real life (because he was in a painting). There is more to this game call New Game Plus which makes the ghost faster and make them deal more damage.

This game is Great. Its has down side which are the nasty controls, and the music keeps on looping. Even per area they don’t change only when you sucking up a ghost. This game gets a 7.5/10. This game costs 20$ used, I HIGHLY recommend this game to anyone if they have a game cube.

Super Mario Galaxy: Game Review (Wii)

Today I’m going to write about the game Super Mario Galaxy. This game starts off at the Star Festival which happens every 100 years because that is when the comet passes by. So at the Star Festival Bowser (The Typical Mario Enemy) invades the Mushroom Kingdom where the Star Festival is Taking Place. Where Bowser as usual takes peach. When all the chaos is going on Mario gets blasted of into a weird planet when he encounters Rosalina. She takes Mario to her ship and sends him on the quest to find stars. She wants him to find the stars to power Rosalinas’ ship so they can find Peach and Defeat Bowser. So to find the stars you will go in a Dome and go into a Galaxy. There are typically 3 missions unless it’s a Minor galaxy which only has 1 mission. In every level you will see sparkling small stars which are Star Bits. You can use these star bits to feed Hungry Lumas to get to different galaxies. The last galaxy in every dome is Either a Bowser Level or a Bower Jr. level. When you beat the last level of the dome you get a Grand Star which a boost of energy for Rosalinas’ ship. Now just because you beat the first dome doesn’t mean your done with it. You can replay every level to discover Hidden star’s. But you also discover Prankster Comets which spawn comets in levels you already played. That’s why I Love this game becuase all galaxies have re-playabilty. Now there are different kinds of comets. There are”Speedy”, “Daredevil”, “Cosmic”, “Fast Foe” and “Purple” comets. The speedy comets time you and you have to beat the level in a certain time. Daredevil comets is when they make you beat a level which one life. Fast Foe Comet is when all the enemies are fast and attack quicker. A Cosmic Comet is when you race for a star with cosmic Mario. The cosmic mario is Blue and Black. And the most annoying Purple Comets or Purple Coin Mission. Thats when they put 100 purple coins on the map and you have to collect all of them. Some of them are timed. There is also a green star which when you find all three unlock the hardest galaxies in the game.

Now for the Basics and Controls. Z is to Crouch. C is to change the angle. And use the analog stick to move around. A to jump. – or + to pause the game. If you Hold Z and press A still you will do a Backflip. If you Press Z and A while moving you will do a Long jump. And when you shake the controller you do a spin attack. When you press A to a wall you can wall jump too.

Now the basics. 1 ups are Green Mushrooms which give you lives. Red mushrooms are Health Extensions giving you 6 Hearts instead of 3. And whats not a Mario game with out Coins. If you collect 50 Coins or Star Bits you will get a 1 up. And Every can get 5 lives from a Mail Toad.

There are various power ups in the game. The Bee Mushroom which allows Mario to fly for a short time when the A button is held. The Booshroom which makes you float in Midair while pressing A and when you shake the Wii Remote you can go through objects.The Fire Flower which allows Mario to throw fireballs at his enemies by shaking the Wii Remote. The Ice Flower which allows Mario to freeze water in small hexagonal ice platforms and skate across them freely. The RainBow star which makes Mario invincible for a short amount of time. The Red Star which allows Mario to fly when you shake the controller. And the Spring Shroom which makes Mario jump extremly high when you press A.

Now when you beat the game with all 120 stars as Mario you unlock Luigi (Mario’s Brother). When you get 120 stars with Luigi you unlock the grand finally galaxy. Which is located on the green star planet. Then after you beat that as Mario or Luigi you will get a letter on the wii mail which congraduates you on beating the game with a picture.
 There is also a Multiplayer mode which allows the other player to stop enemies and collect star bits. They only get a pointer.

Mario

Bowser & Bowser Jr. W/ all Enemies

This game costs is about $20-$40. This game is really fun and has really creative fun levels. But has flaws. The only flaw with me is that the final boss is way too easy, the depth reception is horrible, and you cant skip any text (which isn’t that bad). Everything else is perfect. I give this game a 10/10. Have fun collecting 242 stars!!!

Nintendo Wii – Home Console Review

Ohh the Wii. The Wii is one of my favorite systems made. You might be thinking that the NES or the SNES or the N64 is better. Or to top that of XBox is better, Playstation is better. Well I’ll tell you why I like the Wii the best.  Well first of let talk about the console its self. Well the Wii has Gamecube Memory slots/Controller slots. Sd card slots are included also. There is a Power Adapter a Wii motion capture device, and a Video/Audio output . You can buy component cables to make the gaming in better quality. It also comes with Motion Controllers with a Nunchuck. They look complicated to use but you don’t have to use your controller. Thats one of the reasons why I like this system. They have a lot of different add ons to the Wii. Like different controllers, accessories, etc. But besides that lets talk about the gaming. The quality of the games aren’t as good as the xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 YET. Because they are making the Wii U which will be in Hd. But anyway besides that there is a mii channel on the wii where you can make your self. You can get a whole bunch of other channels too. Now this brings me to the main reason why I love this console. That you can buy old and new games for the wii on the wii.If I must mention you will need a classic controller or a gamecube controller to play most of these games. You can play Sega Genesis games, SNES games, N64 games, NES games and much more. Also you can play Gamecube games on the wii  too. Sadly you cant play all the games they made for these consoles. For Example the NES. For the games they allow you to buy on the wii are usually popular games. And they make over 1000 games for the NES. Most of them are bad anyway. There is a whether channel, Internet channel, basically anything you might need is probably at the Wii store. So if your someone like me who likes Mario or Zelda or any Classic game I would get this system. If you like the more recent game and you care about the graphics get the PlayStation or the Xbox. Also there is a wifi playing on the wii but isn’t as good as the Xbox or Playstation.

Well This has been my Nintendo Wii Review.

I recommend this (Wii) to anyone. If you don’t have one (Wii)you                                                                                                                                                     need one.

I rate this console a 9.5/10

Angry Birds : App Review

This week were going to talk about Angry Birds.Angry Bids is a game about evil pigs stealing the bird eggs. The objective is to fight through the levels and try to get to the last level and get the eggs back. Now each level contains obstacles and a different amount of pigs. There is also a 3 star system. If you get enough points by killing pigs or breaking a lot of obstacles you will get 3 stars. Now as a side note getting 3 stars can be difficult at time to time. Now the game play is easy. You get a slingshot and some birds with you. You have to aim with the slingshot to shoot the bird to kill the pigs. Just so you are not confused you have to use you finger to pull the sling shot and shoot the bird. Here is a picture so you get confused.There are also different kinds of pigs but there are mostly just more defensive.

You start out with the Red Bird which is a normal bird and doesn’t have a special ability if you tap on the screen. But if you tap the screen with a Red Bird will just do a battle cry. But to my knowledge the red bird can go through wooden boxes easier than most birds. Yes there are more birds, And as I said before the other birds will have a special ability if you tap on the screen. You unlock these Birds by progressing through the levels.If I must mention there are chapters and each chapter has about 20 levels i’m not exactly sure.  Now lets talk about the Blue Bird which is a smaller bird than most of them but if you tap the screen the Blue Bird will spit into 3 birds and the smash through ice better than other birds.

Next is the Yellow bird and when you tap it , it will go speeding and can smash really and thing except cement blocks. But I think i’m wrong I think Yellow Birds Can Plow though wooden stuff.

.

Next is the Black Bird Which can explode if you tap the screen but if you don’t it will smash through blocks and then blow up.

Now the Next one is the White bird which when you tap the screen the White Bird will drop Eggs that explodes when hits something.

Now even if you beat the game you will still have more levels to play. In these levels you will unlock the Boomerang Bird (Green Bird) and the Big Brother Bird. The Boomerang Bird comes back like a Boomerang when you tap the screen. It come back and what ever is in the birds way will get demolished.

Now the Final Bird is the Big Brother Bird and basically Brakes/Kills anything that it come in contact with. Again when you tap the screen all the bird does is a battle cry.

Now There are golden eggs you can get witch unlock different levels. The eggs are pretty hard to find. And there are 3 game of angry birds including this one.They are called Angry Birds, Angry Birds Seasons, And Angry Birds Rio. They are all basically the same except different landscapes. There is a secret bird you can get if you pay for it. It Plows through everything literally thats why it costs money. It kills all the pigs in one shot too. Its called the Mighty Eagle.

Angry Birds Costs $5 and it is available for a free download except you don’t get as much levels. Its also Available For Ipad. My Opinion this game has so much love and is EXTREMELY overrated. Sometimes the game makes you mad and the touch screen controls can get difficult. I mean really this game is the most popular game for the ipod and I do not know why. This Game is making more merchandise than they are games. The other games I will not review but Angry Birds Rio costs $2 and Angry Bird Seasons Cost $1. Its Probably dropping prices because they make so much money. I give this Franchise 7/10.

SHhhh heres a spoiler for the next game….

 … the ORANGE BIRD….

Minecraft Mob’s (Part 2)

In this blog I will be showing you part 2 of the Minecraft Mob’s. This part I will be showing the Aggressive Enemies (Enemies that attack you when sighted).

First we have the most annoying the Creeper.They spawn in the dark.The Creeper Explodes when it is too close to you. It wont destroy Obsidian and Bedrock. It does not make any sound. But if it’s at least 1 block near you it will hiss and will have 1.5 seconds to run before it explodes.The Creeper has different size explosions depended on if you’re on Easy,Normal,or Hard. The Creeper has 10 Hearts and deals 5 1/2 Hearts on Easy,10 Hearts on Normal, and 10 1/2 on Hearts on Hard.They do that amount when right next to you. The damage can Vary depending how close they are to you.They drop (0-2) Gunpowder on Death and a Musical Disc When Killed by a Skeleton.

Next is the Zombie.They spawn in the dark.The Zombie has 10 Hearts and deals out 1 Heart on Easy, 2 1/2 on Normal, and 3 1/2 on Hard. The Zombie will walk towards you with your arms up and if it touches you, you will get hurt. The zombies do make a sound so you can be alerted if they are near you. They will drop (0-2) Rotten Flesh which has a 80% chance of poising your food bar. Also when it’s day they will burn.

Next Is a Skeleton. They spawn in the dark. They have 10 Hearts and deal out 1 Heart on Easy, 2 Hearts on Normal, and 3 Heats on Hard. What makes them annoying is that they have Bows and arrows, and thats there method of attacking. And when they fire an arrow they will hide. They sound like Hallow tube clacking. They die in the sun as well. They drop (0-2) Arrows and (0-2) Bones.

Next is the Spider. Spiders have 10 Hearts and deal out 1/2 Heart on Easy,1 Heart on Normal, and 2 1/2 on Hard.T  They are Very fast compared to the other enemies. They spawn in the dark. A cool thing is they don’t attack when it’s light. During the day they are neutral enemies. They Drop (0-2) String on Death.

Now next up is a weird minecraft enemy, Slime.There are different sizes of Slimes. Tiny Slimes which are 0.6 blocks big. They have 1/2 a Heart and deal out 0 Hearts. Next is Small Slimes which are 1.2 blocks big. Have 2 Hearts and deal out 1 Heart. Finally we have a Big Slime which 2.4 blocks big. They Have 8 Hearts and deal out 2 Heats. The weird thing is is that they will slit up to there smaller forms when you find them. Also when they are at the tiny stage thats when drop (0-2) Slime Balls. They spawn in they the dark spawn on specific chucks. So they are pretty rare to find.

Next up is a Spider Jockey. Its called Spider Jockey because its a Skeleton and top of a Spider. Which Mean they are though. So they have 20 Hearts and deal out on direct contact 1 1/2 Hearts. But remember the Skeleton can shoot arrows. They have a 1% chance of finding. On Death it will drop (0-2) String, (0-2) Arrows, and (0-2) Bones.

Next is a Ghast. Spawn anywhere in the Nether and only in the Nether. They shoot out Magma Balls which is there method of attacking. Oh Yeah.. IT CAN FLY! So the only way to kill is with a Bow and Arrows. Unless he comes down to you then you can kill it with your sword. And if it flies into the lava. They have Hearts and deal out 4 1/2 Hearts. They drop (0-2) Gunpowder.

Next is a Silver Fish. Which was recently added to Minecraft. They drop nothing. They have 10 Hearts and deal out 1/2 a Heart. They spawn rarely in Strongholds. And if you mine a block and they appear they will keep on spawning unless you cover the block or mine it. They make the same sound as Spiders do for now.

Finally its a Blue spider or in Mine craft they call it a Cave Spider. They were recently added also. They are only found in Mine shafts and drop (0-2) String. They are smaller than usual Spiders. They have 10 Hearts and deal out on Easy 1/2 Heart, Normal they do 1 Heart, and on Hard they do 1 1/2 Hearts. They are venomous which means when they attack you your health bars turn yellow and lose health every 1/2 a second. But if your food bar is full you will survive 1/2 Heart when your poisoned. So make sure your food bar is full when your fighting them.

Well thats all the enemies. This is my last Minecraft blog until Minecraft 1.9 comes out. I hoped you Enjoyed because this took me a while. So see you guys next week!
